I added The Dark Knight Saga, but removed it. I wanted to check in beforehand. It fits all of the criteria except for the massive scope. The series is limited exclusively to Gotham, though it does detail Batman's war on crime, and the stakes have grown with each film. I'd say that, despite the smaller scale, it still fits. Thoughts?

The series isn't exactly limited to Gotham, but Gotham is the main location, much like Rome in Gladiator, and Hogwarts in Harry Potter.

Also, in the light of The Dark Knight Rises, I'd say the massive scope is no longer arguable. I have therefore elected to add The Dark Knight Saga to the page.

Removed this because it potholes to Christopher Marlowe, which accordingly is indexed (which it shouldn't): Once there is actually a page for Tamburlaine, it can be re-added.

Cut this from the Live Action TV-section, because it indexes "Warrior Prince". Once there is a page on Emperor of the Sea, it can be reinserted.

The single example for all video games is pretty well unacceptable. Anyone want to help me come up with an adequate list of video games that do, in fact, fit the strict definition?

Assassin's Creed seems to be evolving into this... also the Prince of Persia Sands of time trilogy... both seem to fit with the guidelines... long: yes -the AC story spans centuries, and the Po P for about 10 years (at least) or so - and on the outside 4 separate (main) games for each of them and still a WIP (and not to mention the AC expanded universe) wide in scope: AC definetly with three different time periods + the whole secret war thing, Po P not so obvious in So T, WW and TFS, but more developed in T 2 T with the kingdom at stake (or at least the capital city) follows one hero, group or bloodline: group/bloodline variation in AC, one hero in Po P goal: yes AC: stopping Templars, Po P: facing his mess... plenty of C Mo A in both series multiple adventures: AC definetly yes, as for Po P the forgotten sands game could be considered a side-quest

apologies for the rant, just wanted to lay down the arguments for these two games
